Ax Wound Film Festival 2019

Need a cure for your post-spooky-season blues? Halloween may be over, but The Ax Wound Film Festival, now in its fifth year, is ushering in more scares deep into the Fall 2019 season.

Spend Friday evening, November 15th and all-day Saturday, November 16th at the Hooker-Dunham Theater & Gallery ( in downtown Brattleboro, Vermont with some of the most riveting and intense shorts directed by women.

"Many films are darkly funny and more likely to utilize experimental storytelling over the traditional narratives," says festival director Hannah "Neurotica" Forman. Neurotica’s vision each year is focused on the myriad perspectives of today’s social climate. "2019 is horror, and we are left to our own devices, camera, pens, and paints to collectively process it."

Doors open to the public on Friday at 7:30 PM and Saturday at 10:00 AM. Expect free giveaways, raffles, vendors, workshops, presentations, a Filmmaker Q&A, and more. The proceeds earned from the raffle go to the Hooker-Dunham Theater & Gallery and the Scleroderma Research Foundation ( All-access passes that are good for both days are available for purchase at the door for $20.00 (students with ID receive 50% off). Cash only.
